The Foundation Certificate is a new award created by the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS), to meet the needs of veterinarians starting out on their postgraduate learning journey or those that wish to gain specific and up to date knowledge in a chosen subject. This Certificate was specifically conceived for professionals looking for an ‘accelerated’ teaching program and a peer-recognized qualification that does not demand the time commitment required to achieve a full General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert).
By obtaining a Foundation Certificate, you will be recognized internationally for gaining a good standard of knowledge within your chosen subject. This title can be achieved after passing the designated assessments following the completion of a structured distance learning modular training program which has been fully accredited by ISVPS.
The new Certificate follows the quality requirements of ISVPS, and requires further study and assessment as determined by the organizations Academic Board.
The value of the Foundation Certificate is that it allows you to start applying the new knowledge to your everyday practice immediately and also to develop your knowledge in the areas of veterinary medicine that interest you the most. Veterinary professionals can complete more than one Certificate and use them as standalone qualifications or use the Foundation Certificates to complement their already existing qualifications. The Foundation Certificate is a great steppingstone towards a higher middle tier qualification such as the GPCert or the GPAdvCert.
